Default Jeep Wrangler Diesel a Possibility Hints CEO


http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...hints-ceo.html

Quote:
The Moab Easter Jeep Safari gave us six new Jeep concepts last week that were exciting to see and gave us a sneak preview at what Jeep may have in the works for the future.
While speaking about the concepts was the main focus of CEO Mike Manley at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, he also hinted at the possibility that the next-generation Wrangler might come in a diesel variant. At the end of the video highlighting the Moab Easter Jeep Safari models, Manley said, “For me as we think about how Wrangler develops into the future, there are a few things we get constant feedback on. One is diesel and one is pickup.”
And like most automakers that just slightly hint at future models, Manley elaborated that feedback is clearly taken into consideration as Jeep ventures down the early stages of planning for the next-generation Wrangler. It’s clear that Jeep is willing to listen to its enthusiasts on the next-generation Wrangler development, but that doesn’t always indicate what the vast majority of consumers would want.

Give me a diesel and a pickup with solid axles and I'll forget about the Tacoma I'm about to buy.

The fact dealers have be able to sell Wrangler-converted JK8 pickups for over 45k should be a clear indicator that the public wants a small jeep truck. Diesel just sweetens the deal. Unfortunately this will be delayed until the next gen Wrangler, and I am sure that vehicle will be even bigger than the JK.

Cummins powered Wrangle pickup would be a wet dream.

According to the report, Jeep’s head honcho Mike Manley told TheDetroitFreePress that demand for a Wrangler diesel is high: “Wrangler customers really want a diesel. It’s a target vehicle for a diesel once we see the reaction to the Grand Cherokee [diesel].”

No specifics were shared, however, some have speculated that the Wrangler could get a modified version of the European 2.8L inline-four good for 197hp and 339 lb-ft of torque.

Also, they've been spotted testing in Michigan.

I'm gonna need some of you to buy a diesel Grand Cherokee, so I can buy a diesel Wrangler.
